One of the great things we pride ourselves on at Buff Bakery, is providing super healthy alternatives to delicious treats. We love the idea of being able to have a great tasting treat without having it blow your entire diet. One of the ways we do this is by boost up the protein content our products by adding whey protein to our baking. It's important to understand what is in our foods so that we can make conscious decisions on what to eat.
The whey we use in our products is gluten free, non-GMO and Canadian based. Whey can often be a touchy product as it can have fillers, artificial flavouring or be from an un-pure source. The whey we use is also NSF certified which means it complies with strict standards and procedures imposed by NSF. From extensive product testing and material analyses to unannounced plant inspections, every aspect of a product's development is thoroughly evaluated before it can earn NSF certification.
A few of the other ways we boost up our protein sources are from eggs, greek yogurt, nuts, seeds and beans! We love taking yummy treats, making them over, and bringing the healthiest options back to you!
This week we're bringing you a fun twist on a breakfast favourite, pancakes!
